Are you considering breast reduction surgery? In the right circumstances, it can significantly improve your life, and even enhance your appearance. Here’s what you should know.
Breast reduction surgery is usually performed under general anesthesia. An incision is usually made around the areola. Then extra fat, tissue and skin are removed. During the procedure the skin will be tightened and the nipple will be elevated to improve the appearance of the breasts. The scars from this surgery will vary from patient to patient, but the incisions are made in such a way as to keep scars as inconspicuous as possible. In some situations, liposuction is also used during the procedure to reduce fat deposits along the side of the breast.
Many people can benefit from breast reduction surgery. Ask yourself the following questions to determine whether or not this surgery could improve your life:
If you answered yes to some of these questions, you should consult your doctor about breast reduction surgery.
While breast reduction surgery can benefit many people, there are a few situations where you should consider an alternative. If you plan on having more children or if you are not at a stable weight, the size of your breasts could still drastically change in the future. In this case, it may be wise to wait for a while to have the surgery. Your doctor will be able to help you decide what is best.
